Daily Recap: David Yates, Gary Ross Circle WB's 'Tarzan,' Bryan Cranston Hints At 'Breaking Bad' Movie

Bryan Cranston says a Breaking Bad movie is being explored. Cranston says creator Vince Gilligan is wondering about the possibility of following Walter White past the show's final season. "Vince feels that now we have too much story. We could actually go beyond those [final] 16 episodes. It's not far-fetched. I wouldn't mind visiting that possibility." [L.A. Times]

While production continues on a 3D motion-capture version of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan starring Kellan Lutz, Warner Bros. is also looking to get into the Tarzan business. The studio has two potential variations of the story in the works. One is a trilogy that is being written by Hustle & Flow's Craig Brewer and the other has been written by Adam Cozad. Cozad's version is moving forward and three directors have emerged as leading contenders to helm the project.

Harry Potter director David Yates, The Hunger Games director Gary Ross and Nanny McPhee Returns director Susanna White are all circling the project. A betting man would place their odds with Yates, given his track record and history with WB with the Potter films. Ross is coming off the success of The Hunger Games and was could have returned for the sequel Catching Fire had he not turned the offer down to work on other project. Could this be that project for Ross? [Deadline and SlashFilm]
